How To Reset JioFi Password Even When You Don’t Remember It

JioFi is a portable router that was launched by Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited at the same time when they launched their 4G SIM cards in India. It was a great initiative by the company as people wanted to try Jio 4G SIM cards while they were carrying a 3G phone in their hands. People still today like to use the JioFi device even if they have a 4G smartphone. And the reason is that you can easily connect your PC/laptop with your JioFi or with your smartphone. Secondly, it’s really compact in size, making it a travel-friendly router.

This makes it necessary to change the JioFi password ASAP. And it’s really simple to do so, keeping reading to know how it can be done.

Forgot Username And Password? Here’s How To Factory Reset

It’s quite common for people to forget about their JioFi username and password. In that case, it becomes impossible to access the Jio website that we used to reset the password. And you won’t see My device option in the Jio app as well.

In that case, all you need to do is, reset your Jiofi to factory settings. This is how you can do it.

1. First, you need to open the back cover of your JioFi router.

2. On the right side, you will see a small hole with Reset written adjacent to it.

3. Now you need to grab a sharp pin-like object and insert it in the little hole where the reset button is hidden.

4. Hold the button pressed for about 30 seconds. Now you will see the lights of your JioFi router blinking and your JioFi restarting.

5. Once it is opened, go to the Jio web page again (given above in the first method.) This time the page will open and now you easily set a new password for your JioFi again.

With this, you have set a new password for your router while you didn’t remember your previous password.

Final Thoughts

It is always suggested to change the password of your JioFi every 2-3 months. When someone visits your home, it’s common we share our passwords with them. Similarly, we sometimes share our password with our neighbors when they face connectivity problems with their WiFi. So, many people might use your WiFi and deplete your data. By changing your password, you can avert unwanted devices from using your WiFi.
